Özet

Reported here is a 50-year-old man with cubital tunnel syndrome due to heterotopic ossification after traumatic brain injury. Herein, underscoring the role of ultrasonographic evaluations in the diagnosis of our patient, we suggest that ultrasonographic imaging can be a useful first-line diagnostic method for the possibility of HO and its complications. Further, due to its high spatial resolution, lack of radiation and easy applicability, we imply that US seems to overweigh in the daily practice of rehabilitation physicians.
